Subject: Billy Collins - Animated Poetry
This is one of two animated poems by American poet Billy Collins available in the Animation Shorts section. I've seen music videos and videos where text and/or the voice of a narrator is combined with animation. Here you hear the author read his own text in a musical bass voice. Subtle poetry is visualized or interpreted with subtle visual means. This piece was created by Julian Grey of Headgear, "The Dead" by Juan Delcan of Spontaneous. Other animated poems can be watched here: http://www.bcactionpoet.org/
